PES’s uncanny knack for transforming familiar objects and people through stop-motion animation has earned him global recognition and dozens of honours, including an Academy Award® nomination for Fresh Guacamole in 2013 (the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar).
PES is the creator of some of the most widely viewed stop-motion films of all-time including Roof Sex, KaBoom!, Game Over, Human Skateboard, Western Spaghetti, and Fresh Guacamole. On YouTube alone, his films have been viewed over 200 million times.
In addition to his original content, PES has also directed over 60 commercials for major international brands including Android, Honda, Orange Telecom, Kinder Surprise, PlayStation, Sprint, Samsung and Bacardi.
His latest spot for Honda – entitled “Paper” – has won numerous awards, including a Gold Pencil at the 2016 One Show, in addition to receiving the One Show’s “Automobile Advertising of the Year Award.” It was also recently added to the permanent collection at both the Louvre’s Museum of Advertising and The Museum of Modern Art.
